Why there are no turkeys?
I am already experiencing the urbanfactor of KTM and feeling ill with the nausea so it's good to have a retreat. Driving in from the countryside is a big adjustment, but then it's really not a whole lot different than seeing the skyline of Seattle, I'm just not used to it.
The big difference is the poverty and filth and it seems like a lot of the locals don't think this can change. When a person is struggling day to day to support themselves it is difficult to do much else for the community. Especially when people are from all sorts of places and backgrounds. I think this might be a problem back home in the USA too- we really should watch out for each other and take better care of our home- Planet Earth, for all humans. My task here is to not compare Nepal where I grew up and practice acceptance, patience and a sense of humour. I really have no idea sometimes what is going on here!
I still haven't found out why there are no Turkeys in Nepal. It's my latest bewonderment of this country. Happy Thanksgiving, there is so much to be grateful for...
